Leviticus 16:17-27 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
17 No one is to be in the Tent of Meeting from the time Aaron goes in to make atonement in the Most Holy Place until he comes out, having made atonement for himself, his household and the whole community of Israel. 18 "Then he shall come out to the altar1 that is before the LORD and make atonement for it. He shall take some of the bull's blood and some of the goat's blood and put it on all the horns of the altar.2 19 He shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times to cleanse it and to consecrate it from the uncleanness of the Israelites.3 20 "When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place, the Tent of Meeting and the altar, he shall bring forward the live goat.4 21 He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat5 and confess6 over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites--all their sins--and put them on the goat's head. He shall send the goat away into the desert in the care of a man appointed for the task. 22 The goat will carry on itself all their sins7 to a solitary place; and the man shall release it in the desert. 23 "Then Aaron is to go into the Tent of Meeting and take off the linen garments8 he put on before he entered the Most Holy Place, and he is to leave them there.9 24 He shall bathe himself with water in a holy place10 and put on his regular garments.11 Then he shall come out and sacrifice the burnt offering for himself and the burnt offering for the people,12 to make atonement for himself and for the people.13 25 He shall also burn the fat of the sin offering on the altar. 26 "The man who releases the goat as a scapegoat14 must wash his clothes15 and bathe himself with water;16 afterward he may come into the camp. 27 The bull and the goat for the sin offerings, whose blood was brought into the Most Holy Place to make atonement, must be taken outside the camp;17 their hides, flesh and offal are to be burned up.
